Hi all,

I'm on an HP laptop here, without the ability to easily replace it at the moment, and with a gradually growing Command Timeout Count (2-3 per day) reported in the SMART attributes, and some ambiguous performance issues (Windows 10 reporting 100% disk use much of the time), but no other errors found with the drive.

I know the top priority is making sure everything is backed up. But beyond that, how worried would you be, on a scale of "drive will fail this week" to "it's probably fine for another year"?

Here's the full SMART readout and Disk Check results:

Thanks for any and all thoughts!

You can check the drive for "slow sectors" by performing a surface scan with MHDD in DOS.
